  • In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper pops countless blackheads speckled across a patient’s nose.

  • The patient says his nose feels "rough" when he rubs it, leading Dr. Lee to explain what causes the sandpaper-like texture.

  • A blackhead is a single pore filled with dead skin and oil, which forms a black “head” when exposed to air.

There's nothing like the classics. In a new Instagram video, Dr. Pimple Popper—aka dermatologist and TLC host Dr. Sandra Lee, MD—pops countless blackheads speckled across a patient’s nose. This rough “sandpaper” nose has met its match.

In the clip, Dr. Lee wastes no time attacking the patient’s nose, which is speckled with sticky blackheads. The famed dermatologist uses a comedone extractor and a firm hand to push out the compacted contents, leading to several satisfying pops.

During the extractions, the patient tells Dr. Lee that when he rubs his nose, it feels rough, leading Dr. Lee to explain why that is.

“That’s because you have all these bumpies here on the ends. All these blackheads — dilated follicles," she says. "Blackheads with a lot of oil, skin, and keratin stuck in them.”

“Those things were paying rent,” one commenter wrote in response to the clip. Another fan added, “I literally drooled with this one.” Let’s call that comment what it is: incredibly disturbing.

A blackhead is a single pore filled with dead skin and oil, which forms a black “head” when exposed to air. The lighter material seen in this clip is actually the same material as the "head," only this skin and oil hasn't been exposed to air.
